Given the fact that Europe has launched its navigation system, it is easy to ask whether Tom Tom navigation systems are able to receive and operate from the signal of the European navigation system Galileo.

    Hi @Pepa48

    Welcome to the community! TomTom PND models use the GPS and the GLONASS for location tracking. The devices don't use Galileo but the hardware on the new generation models is GALILEO ready.

    TomTom smartphone apps also work on several mobile devices. The type of satellite system used by mobile phones depends on the phone. Most modern smartphones use all three- GPS, GLONASS, and GALILEO.

    Thanks, Vikram.
